Program Description

MEng / MPhil in Engineering Management (Lectured or Research based)

University of Johannesburg

MEng in Engineering Management (Lectured)

The purpose of the qualification is to develop an engineer with advanced abilities in applying fundamental engineering management sciences and/design and synthesis and related principles to specific management systems problems of society at large. One of the main objectives in this process is to develop an advanced capability to conduct fundamental systems engineering and management research independently. It also promotes a lifelong learning approach.

Qualification outcomes

Exit level outcomes:

The qualified student will be able to:

  1. Identify, assess, formulate, interpret, analyse and solve engineering research and development problems creatively and innovatively by applying relevant fundamental knowledge of i.e. Mathematics, Basic Science and/or Engineering and Management Sciences in the chosen field of research.
  2. Plan and manage engineering management research projects, demonstrating fundamental knowledge, understanding and insight into the principles, methodologies and concepts that constitute socially responsible (to local and other communities) research/development in the chosen field of research practice.
  3. Work effectively,individually or with others,as a member of a team, group, organisation and the community or in multi-disciplinary environments in the chosen field of research.
  4. Organise and manage him/herself and his/her activities responsibly, effectively, professionally and ethically, accept responsibility within his/her limits of competence,and exercise judgement based on knowledge and expertise, pertaining to the field of research.
  5. Plan and conduct applicable levels of investigation, research and/or experiments by applying appropriate theories and methodologies,and perform data analysis and interpretation.
  6. Communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, with engineering and specifically research audiences and the community at large,in so far as they are affected by the research,using appropriate structure, style and graphical support.
  7. Use and assess appropriate engineering management research methods, skills, tools and information technology effectively and critically in engineering research/development practice,and show an understanding and a willingness to accept responsibility for the impact of research/development activities on society and the environment.
  8. Evaluate systems, works, products or processes as a set of related systems,and assess their social, legal, health, safety and environmental impact and benefits,where applicable,in the chosen field of research.
  9. Employ various learning strategies and skills to master outcomes required for preparing him/herself to engage in continuous learning,to keep abreast of knowledge and skills required in the engineering management field.
  10. Participate as a responsible citizen in the life of local, national and global communities by acting professionally and ethically in the chosen field of research.
  11. Demonstrate,where applicable, cultural and aesthetic sensitivity across a range of social contexts in the execution of engineering management research and development activities.
  12. Explore,where applicable,education and career opportunities in engineering management research/development.
  13. Organise and develop entrepreneurial opportunities through engineering, technical research, development and/or managerial skills.

Admission requirements and selection criteria

An approved four-year Bachelor’s degree in Engineering.

Conferment of the degree

The MEng: Engineering Management degree will be conferred on students who have completed the six prescribed modules and minor dissertation successfully. Weight of the minor dissertation is 50%.

MEng in Engineering Management (Research based)

The purpose of the qualification is to develop an engineer with advanced abilities in applying fundamental engineering management sciences and/design and synthesis,and related principles to specific management systems problems of society at large. One of the main objectives in this process is to develop an advanced capability to conduct fundamental independent systems engineering and management research independently. It also promotes a lifelong learning approach.
